Molecule centerpiece, periodic table seating chart, & electric cake? This “Science of Love” wedding editorial has been under wraps for over a year, patiently waiting to inspire science lovers and even those that skipped the class. I am thrilled to see it recently featured on Every Last Detail, and to feature some of our favorite images here for your pinning pleasures!
Here’s some inspiring details about the shoot from Staci of Unique Event Design,
“Annie & Adam” met in college. As scientists, they wanted their wedding to represent the story of their relationship, hence “Science of Love” was created. A metallic color scheme combining copper, gold, and silver was set.The venue’s metal, glass, and concrete interior created an amazing contrast against the elegant bride. The bride carried an avant garde bouquet, combining orchids, lilies, and scabiosa pods. The exotic florals and frayed wire accents created an asymmetrical shape and loads of dimension. The groom’s boutonniere kept a masculine edge by combining the flowers with wires. For a unique take on a unity ceremony, the bride & groom poured vinegar over baking soda creating an overflowing, scientific reaction. A periodic table seating chart was used to guide the guests to their seat. Cocktail hour centerpieces incorporated dry ice and fire, and hors d’oeuvres included tomato soup served in test tubes and shrimp with sauce eyedroppers. Beakers and glass containers of floating candles led the way to the table setup on the first floor of the museum. A linen, replicating liquid copper, framed the tablescape beautifully. The table centerpiece was reminiscent of the design of DNA, with hexagon shapes and connecting tubes, atop a metal mesh runner. The table number looked like a typical piece of notebook paper and broke down multiple math problems with x = the table number. The stand alone menus were the major highlight of the tabescape resembling miniature 3-sided science project boards. A copper colored calla lily graced each napkin and hexagon placecards had the guests’ names noted like periodic table elements. For dessert, the mysterious chocolate balloon was featured. Warm liquid is poured over an edible sphere and as it melts, a chocolate dessert is revealed inside. The wedding cake was kept all white with metallic frayed wire accents and a wire heart topper. It had a backdrop of metal slats and was highlighted with exposed light bulbs above.
